May Graphic Epstein Autopsy Photos Point To Murder?
After a five-month investigation, on Sunday night, 60 Minutes obtained Epstein autopsy photos and also photos of the cell where the sentenced sex offender was found dead.
As we reported a while ago, the Federal Bureau of Prisons published news of Jeffrey Epstein’s death in prison.
They found him unresponsive in his cell at New York’s Metropolitan Correctional Center around 6:30 a.m. ET. Then Staff began life-saving measures, and they brought Epstein to a hospital, where he died.
Then, Jeffrey Epstein’s victim’s stories are told in court for the first time after his death. More than a dozen alleged victims of the convicted pedophile finally had their opportunity in court and detailed the abuse and lingering trauma they assume they experienced.
And now as the latest news, Graphic Epstein Autopsy Photos showing injuries to Jeffrey Epstein’s neck after he allegedly hanged himself inside his New York City jail cell have surfaced this week, as suspicions linger surrounding how the disgraced billionaire died.
Details of graphic Epstein autopsy
The photos, which include images of nooses Epstein is declared to have made out of bedsheets at the Metropolitan Correctional Center in Manhattan last August, were first announced.
They depict a messy and chaotic scene inside the cell where the convicted pedophile lived the last moments of his life, as sheets are strewn across the floor while parts of fabric can be seen tied to a bedpost and window grate.
His death last August was ruled a suicide, but Epstein Autopsy Photos tell a different story according to former New York City Medical Examiner Dr. Michael Baden, who observed the autopsy at the behest of Epstein’s family.
“This noose doesn’t match the ligature furrow mark. It’s wider than this,” Baden said, later adding, “Most hangings, especially free hangings, the ligature slides up to beneath the jawbone, the mandible. Here it’s in the middle of the neck.”
It was additionally pointed out the noose in the cell seemed to not have any blood on it, and there were electrical wires in the cell that would have worked much better for anyone wanting to commit suicide.
Was Jeffrey Epstein’s death a suicide?
Baden, who was hired by Epstein’s brother and observed the autopsy that the 66-year-old had two fractures on the left and right sides of his larynx, specifically the thyroid cartilage or Adam’s apple, as well as one fracture on the left hyoid bone above Adam’s apple.
“Those three fractures are extremely unusual in suicidal hangings and could occur much more commonly in homicidal strangulation,” Baden had said.
“I’ve not seen in 50 years where that occurred in a suicidal hanging case,” he added.
“I have never seen three fractures like this in a suicidal hanging,” Baden said, adding, “Going over a thousand jail hangings, suicides, in the New York State prisons over the past 40, 50 years, no one had three fractures.”
Also, a photo showed a handwritten note left inside Epstein’s cell containing complaints he seemingly had about the conditions in prison. He wrote that one guard “kept me in a locked shower stall for 1 hour”, before claiming another had “send me burnt food”.
A theory of murder
Baden’s conclusion will only fuel the conspiracy theory that Epstein, a convicted sex offender who was associated with some of the world’s most powerful people like Donald Trump and former President Bill Clinton, was murdered.
FBI detectives investigating Epstein’s death also have been looking into whether a “criminal enterprise” may have played a role, the Bureau of Prisons’ director revealed in November during testimony in front of the Senate Judiciary Committee.
“With a case this high-profile, there has got to be either a major malfunction of the system or criminal enterprise at the foot to allow this to happen. So are you looking at both? Is the FBI looking at both?” Sen. Lindsey Graham had asked Kathleen Hawk Sawyer.
Baden previously told “Fox & Friends” Epstein’s injuries were more consistent with murder than suicide. His determination hinged on two bone fractures in Epstein’s larynx, in the area of Adam’s apple, and a third break on the bone above Adam’s apple.
“Those three fractures are extremely unusual in suicidal hangings and could occur much more commonly in homicidal strangulation,” Baden told throughout the segment. “I’ve not seen in 50 years where that occurred in a suicidal hanging case.”
Epstein, who was previously sentenced to prostituting an underage girl, was charged in July with sex trafficking of minors and conspiracy, but the criminal case was dismissed following his death.
